The Amazon Files, hosted by Kristin Ostrander, Amazon business strategist and one of the founders of Mommy Income, hits the airwaves every Tuesday with the real truth about selling on Amazon. This show isn’t about sugar-coated reality. It’s real truth - the good, the bad and the ugly - shared with practical action steps and strategies to help both new and experienced sellers tackle the world’s largest retail sales platform.

Dec 17, 2018

The biggest sales days of the year are still to come, but once the dates between December 10th and December 21st are gone, many Amazon sellers will be considering what to do in 2019. As we move into the new year, we should reflect on the past twelve months and think about the next. Now is the time to make business pivots and adjustments and introduce new products and wholesale bundles. 

Today, we share the details of the various transitions we have made to get to the next level and sell more product. We encourage you to revisit why you started your Amazon business, explain how to transition your business from retail arbitrage to wholesale bundles, and highlight the valuable tools and resources that will help you find even greater success. We also share how you can use your top ten sellers to make new bundles and reveal why it is crucial to raise your Average Selling Price.
